steamed artichokes and honey mustard dip!

today i went to fubon, an asian market in portland, because my friend wanted to get his girlfriend some hello kitty stuff and i needed some frozen dumplings. when we were walking through the produce section, i noticed that their selection of artichokes looked a lot more fresh than the artichokes i had seen at safeway the other day. then, my friend pointed out that they were only 89 cents and i was sold. i bought four. when i got home, i steamed up one for me and one for benny and served it with a homemade honey mustard.

    I just found your blog and you make some great things. Have you tried grilling your artichokes? My wife loves them almost more than she loves me.
